Publisher's Description

How far will some go to silence an influential Christian voice?

FBI agent Dinah Harris now has a missing person's file to go along with a bad case of alcohol abuse and the depression she cannot seem to shake. Fighting to keep her focus, she struggles to find answers for why Thomas Whitfield, the prominent Secretary of the Smithsonian has vanished from his office with foul play almost guaranteed. Whitfield's body is eventually found, and Dinah is drawn into a frightening conspiracy, as more people begin to die, and Whitfield's faith is revealed as part of the motive behind his murder. Dinah finds troubling answers in an academic world filled with powerful financial endowments and a virulent opposition to the faith Whitfield only recently found. Can she reveal the truth before she finds herself the next silenced victim of a ruthless, unseen enemy?

First in a powerful new fiction trilogy!

Author Bio

Julie Cave credits her parents for introducing her to books at a young age, which fostered an enduring passion for reading and writing. As a child, her favorite authors were Enid Blyton and C.S. Lewis and it wasn’t long before she began copying them, writing short stories for anyone who would read them. At fifteen, two things happened which would shape her future: she heard a creation science speaker at her church which cemented her faith in God; and she finished her second novel-length story and realized she had fallen in love with writing novels.

After school, she completed a health science degree, got married, and worked in banking and finance. All the while she wondered how she could combine her love of writing and her strong passion for Christian apologetics and evangelism. One weekend at a church camp, a friend asked, ’What if the guy in charge of the Smithsonian Institution went missing?’ The result – and the answer to that question – is Julie’s maiden published novel, Deadly Disclosures. This book is first in the Dinah Harris trilogy authored by Julie; the other two books are titled The Shadowed Mind and Pieces of Light.

Julie has two daughters and lives in Brisbane, Australia with her family. She divides her time between being a wife, a mother, and an author.

Deadly Disclosures by Julie Cave is the first in a trilogy of suspense novels whose protagonist is FBI agent Dinah Harris. The story begins with Dinah on the rocks emotionally and about to lose her job because of her drinking problem. She is suicidal, grieving over the loss of her husband and young son, and alcohol is her only coping mechanism. This interferes with her latest case involving the disappearance and eventual murder of the director of the Smithsonian Institution, Thomas Whitfield. Three more people closely connected to Whitfield are later found dead, and the circle of suspects grows wider and begins to involve the board of trustees of the Institution. Two opposing camps are quickly formed: supporters of the theory of evolution and creationist scientists. Whitfield had been planning a speech to Congress to ask for a different direction for the Smithsonian, and certain trustees were bound to stop him no matter what or who got in their way. The climax of the book puts Dinah Harris right in the center of the controversy of Darwinism and the Bible in a nonstop ending that will satisfy the Christian reader.

This novel addresses the conflict between evolution and creationism down to very specific points that will cause readers to do some serious thinking. Both sides are presented in an unbiased way through dialogue among different characters. There are no direct Bible passages quoted, however the message of God’s relationship with man in an imperfect world is clearly explained several times. Even Dinah Harris’ struggle to end her suicidal addiction to the bottle and become a Christian is filled with a sense of rightness and hope.

The novel is paced well and easy to follow. It is an enjoyable book and is recommended to the readers of action and suspense fiction. I look forward to Julie Cave’s next book. – Anita Tiemeyer, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    This review was written for Deadly Disclosure.
    Another taut romantic suspense from Meghan Carver. This is her second book with Love Inspired Suspense and she has the twisty turny plot heavy on sinister and liberally dosed with cat-and-mouse pursuits down pat. The edgy first scene sets the pace and I found myself nervously checking over my shoulder right along with Hannah for the duration. She has to handle a lot of surprises in short order -- not the least of which is the reappearance of her high school sweetheart. Shadows from her past threaten her future and Derek is determined he won't let her down this time. Delicious second chance romance paired with danger and mystery make Deadly Disclosure a real page-turner.

    I could not get into this book. I found it very uninteresting. I have an eighteen year old that read it. He said he did not enjoy it, but finished it any way.I never finished it. This is just my taste. Other people may love it. The world is made up of different personility types. If you have a chance to try the book before buying then do so because you might love it.

    Dinah Harris is a down-and-out FBI agent who's survived a family tragedy - barely. Once a rising star in the Bureau, she now struggles to get through each workday until she can drown in her favorite wine. When her former partner pushes buttons and removes her from her day-to-day teaching job and gets her reinstated to agent status, can she keep it together to find the missing Secretary of the Smithsonian?

    I love real characters. You know the kind I mean - the kind with the sort of flaws that we've struggled with personally, the kind that the guy down the street has or that we see in the carpool line at school. Dinah Harris is such a character.

    Following a huge personal tragedy, she falls into a deep depression and tries to numb the pain with alcohol - which only adds an alcoholic's problems to her original ones. It doesn't help that she's been demoted to a teacher at the FBI academy and lost her dream position of star agent.

    The story opens as her partner returns, having gotten permission for her to work the case of the missing Smithsonian secretary, and you can feel Dinah's pain as you read. Knowing that she was once totally different than she is now, you can't help but cheer her on through this rare second chance. As she makes mistake after mistake and you learn more of her story, you just want to hand her a box of tissues and give her a big hug.

    If Deadly Disclosures were only the story of Dinah Harris solving a high-profile case, it would be a good one. What makes it even better is the other side of it - the shady political deals happening behind the scenes. While I'm about as political as a slug, I found this fascinating, mainly because I learned so much from this part of the story.

    Thomas Whitfield, the Secretary of the Smithsonian, was a devout evolutionist - until the day he became a Christian. With Whitfield interested in Creationism before he disappeared, Dinah finds herself in a no-holds-barred search for the truth - as bodies begin to appear and her own downward spiral continues.

    I feared that a story where the author had a distinct desire to teach something would be preachy, but Deadly Disclosures is anything but. With politicians and heads of organizations interviewed throughout the book, the information is shared at just the right pace for a newbie to understand, and, better yet, both sides of the issue are explained.

    Cave uses natural dialogue and the twists and turns of the case to educate the reader about creationism. It is clear that she stands on a distinct side of this issue, but scientific information is shared to support all premises. Both sides of the issues are very well explained and inherent to the story, making it come across as a really well-researched suspense novel.

    Now, with that technical stuff out of the way, this is a really awesome start to a great trilogy. It's fast-paced, action-packed, and a dramatic mystery that makes you feel for the main character even as you try to solve the mystery before she does. (I liked it so much that I read the whole series in two days. I can't wait for Cave's next book!)
